Another wanted Boko Haram terrorist, Ishaku Wardifen, has been arrested, the Nigerian Army said on Monday.
Wardifen is one of the 100 insurgents recently declared wanted by the Nigerian Army.
This came a day after a wanted Boko Haram terrorist suspect Chindo Bello, was arrested at Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
Below is a statement by Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations:
“As all hands are on deck to finally defeat Boko Haram terrorists in our country, today in the morning, another declared wanted suspected Boko Haram terrorist, Ishaku Wardifen, was nabbed by vigilant troops of 23 Brigade Special Battalion at a check point in Maiha, Adamawa State.
Preliminary interrogation revealed that the suspected terrorist is a Cameroonian citizen. Visual matching with photographs on the poster of the 100 declared suspected Boko Haram terrorists wanted list released by the Nigerian last month, shows that he clearly resembles the suspect on serial number 22 on the list.
The suspect has been handed over to military intelligence for further investigation and possible prosecution.
Nigerian Army would like to once more call on all citizens and all well meaning residents of our country to continue to be more vigilant and security conscious to enable us rid our great nation of the menace of terrorism and insurgency.”
